Photos of Launceston's city streets

The Examiner photographer Phillip Biggs has been capturing Launceston’s streets and iconic buildings during spring. 

As we wave goodbye to winter we welcome warmer weather, earlier sunrises, striking sunsets and spring blooms. 

If you’re nifty with a camera or a smartphone, get snapping the warmer weather and enter your photos in The Examiner’s reader photo competition. 

Tasmania in Focus is a competition that calls on the community to enter photos showcasing our glorious, rugged state. 

Photos are not confined to landscape shots: we also want to see the people who live, work and visit the Apple Isle. 

You don’t need fancy equipment to enter, but a good eye and great timing will be handy. ​

Two of The Examiner’s senior photographers, Phillip Biggs and Scott Gelston, have shared tips on taking photos during the cooler months. 

The spring competition will run from September 1 to November 5.

Remember photos entered must be taken within spring of 2017.
